I have a question regarding cookies. Assume, a browser receives some cookies from ABC.com. So, is it possible that ABC.com can read all cookies associated with browser (machine)? Or, it can read only the cookies that belong to it?

Thanks

ABC.com will only be sent the cookies for ABC.com
Also, if the cookie includes path information, such as /forum, it will only be sent to that context.
